Winner of the 2011 Interpretation Canada Bronze Award

Discover Alberta's geology through an interactive game where students work in teams and move around a floor-sized game board shaped like the province. As they answer questions, do demonstrations and complete tasks, they learn how geologic processes have shaped the land and how these processes have impacted us today. Through engaging, hands-on learning, students will gain a greater understanding and appreciation for geology.
